Editorial Reviews

Gasolineis infectiously listenable and steeped in the founding tenets of rock royalty - angst, groove, and the almighty volume. Originally discovered by Nickelback's Chad Kroeger, one of the young breed of rock's most prolific and successful personalities, Theory has already achieved more on their first album than most bands do in a career. Roadrunner. 2005.

4.0 out of 5 stars Uncensored January 27, 2008
Format:Audio CD
If you like your Theory of a Deadman uncut, this import version is the one you want.

Roadrunner, the label that released the album in the US, chose to release only an edited version; 604 Records, the label that distributed Gasoline to the rest of the world, chose to release only the uncensored.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better Than Expected. January 13, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I'll admit, when I first heard Theory Of A Deadman, back in 2002, I instantly wrote them off as a Nickelback clone. Afterall, they kind of have that sound, and their first album was even produced by Nickelback's own Chad Kroeger. However, as I have learned many times before, passing judgment so quickly on a band is hardly ever a good idea. If it wasn't for the fact that I'll be seeing these guys open for Staind in a few weeks, I probably wouldn't have checked out this album. However, I gave Theory Of A Deadman (or T.O.A.D.) a second chance and recently picked up their sophmore album, "Gasoline." I have to say, I was quite surprised by what was inside...

While it is true that T.O.A.D. may not re-invent the genre or bring anything entirely new to the table, what they do offer is a solid, healthy dosage of modern rock. Their sound is one that you are used to if you are familiar with radio-rock, but that's not a bad thing, as these guys do this style better than a lot of bigger bands out there (not naming names). Not only does vocalist/guitarist Tyler Connelly have a smooth, strong and disctinctive voice, but the guitar playing between him and co-guitarist David Brenner is a notch above what is usually heard in this type of music. As for the songs, Connelly pretty much writes the perfect breaking-up/being dumped songs. The first single, "No Surprise" is a perfect middle-finger to those that like to tease, while semi-acoustic tracks like "Hello Lonely (Walk Away From This)" and "Since You've Been Gone" could easily be the next big hits, despite their tendency to get a bit predictable. However, to counteract the few cheesy songs ("Hell Just Ain't The Same," ""Me And My Girl"), T.O.A.D.

5.0 out of 5 stars $13 very well spent April 1, 2005
By Mike
Format:Audio CD
I have bought 2 CDs in my life (quite an accomplishment for a starving university kid), and both CDs are by Theory of a Deadman. I bought this CD as soon as it came out, and I was a bit disappointed. Not to say this isn't good, it is a rocking and extremely awesome CD, but the first one was just too damn good.

In contrast to the last CD, this one feels more personal. TOAD has broadened their music style and the music is definitely heavier than the last CD. The guitar is also better on this record.

Here is a review of all the tracks, and I don't give out 10s, because I think nothing is perfect (maybe a bit cynical for a 18 year old). So 9.5 is the "perfect" score.

1. Hating Hollywood: A good start to the album and great rock riffs. The opening riff is addictive. 8.5/10

2. No Way Out: A hard rocking song and has a fast pace. The song gets better as it goes along. 8/10

3. No Surprises: The first single from the CD. When I first heard it, it was a pleasant surprise. It is a good song and gets even better after listening to it more. This is a song written before TOAD became famous (I remember hearing this on the CFOX), so it is nice to get a glimpse of the style before they got famous. Good lyrics too. 9/10

4. Quiver: A good rock song. Not much to say about it other than it is fast and some strong lyrics for TOAD. 8/10

5. Santa Monica: A change of pace from the previous songs. The only song to contain the name of the album "gasoline". Very good chorus. Reminds me of "Make up Your Mind", with a melancholy tone that is prevalent through out the album. 9/10

6. Better Off: Faster than the previous track. Reminds me of a mix of "Leg to Stand On" and "What You Deserve" from the last CD.

7. Say Goodbye: Excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars No Sophmore Slump here April 14, 2005
Format:Audio CD
TOAD's 2nd album, Gasoline, is in my mind 50x better than the first one. the debut album was awsome too, but with Gasoline, Tyler, Dave, and Dean (Tim Hart, the drummer quit) experiment with different tunings, melodic riffs of both crunchy rock and hard southern rock. Not only that, but there are more solos in this album.

Their influences come from early 90's hard rock, most noticeably, Pearl Jam and Stone Temple Pilots....although i really dont think they sound like PJ. And everyone compares them to Nickleback which i hate because TOAD is way far more better and diverse, although both bands have similar influences.

I think the band took their own way with this album, not sounding like Nickleback, but i compare this to STP's "Purple" in the fact that both Gasoline and Purple have that southern rock flair to it along with some melodies. STP's "kitchenware and candybars" is the equivalent to "Santa Monica" or "Since youve been gone" and "meatplow" is the equivalent to "quiver".

1. Hating Hollywood-10/10: great way to start off the album, very STPish, probably my favorite song along with Save the Best for Last

2. No way out-9/10: excellent solo....thats all i have to say, and verrry catcy

3. No suprise-7/10: for all the other great songs on the album, this shouldnt have been the first single, but catchy verse

4. Quiver-10/10: very heavy and awsome lyrics, tyler sings angrily...you could definitely confuse this with STP

5. Santa Monica-9/10: just awsome....very powerful ballad....just powerful

6. Better Off-8/10: very catchy....great lyrics, very uptempo

7. Say Goodbye 7/10: similar to "say im sorry", could have fit well on first album, proves that tyler is good at writing breakup songs
